Sweet & Tasty Peach Crisp

Well, it's still raining here...I think it's been raining for about 10 days straight, 
maybe even more, but I have lost track of the days.
Wednesday morning at about 3:00 am there was a big thunder and lightening storm.
The thunder was rattling our home and it reminded me of God's great power.

Anyway,
I want to thank you, sweet friends, for your concern since many of you know I live in Colorado 
and have written me to see if my family and I are safe from the flooding.
Thankfully, we don't live near the floods so we are okay,
but I do know some people that have suffered from the flooding.
 My heart is sad and heavy for them and the many others that have lost so much.
My prayers are certainly with them during this difficult time.
Again, thank you for showing such care and kindness!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now how about making something sweet for the weekend.
Peach season is always a favorite in our household.
Fresh, sweet, juicy peaches - mmmm... nothing quite like them! :)
And of course with peach season comes delectable desserts:
peach cobbler, peach pie, peach muffins, peach turnovers, peach crisp.


So grab some peaches and we'll make a delightful peach crisp.

Ingredients needed:
5 cups sliced, peeled peaches
2 - 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1/2 cups regular rolled oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup chopped nuts or coconut (optional)

Place peaches in a 2-quart square baking dish.
Stir in the granulated sugar and vanilla or almond.

For the topping, 
in a medium bowl combine the oats, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Cut in butter until mixture resembles course crumbs.
Stir in the nuts.

Sprinkle topping over fruit.

Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 30 - 35 minutes
or until fruit is tender and topping is golden.


Serve with ice cream or just rich, thick cream :)
Enjoy!


Hugs and blessings to you!
Enjoy the upcoming weekend :)

Stephanie...first, I am so happy that you are safe and sound. That being said, I am praying for your friends and all who are being affected by the flooding.

Your peach crisp looks delightfully yummy! Peaches are Steve's favorite. : )

Have a wonderful day, my friend!

Looks very yummy! :-) I love peaches as well! Our town has it's own Peach Festival, but most of the peach trees were froze out this Spring so had no peaches this year.

I've been making pear crisp quite a bit lately since we have a lot of pears from our trees!

So glad to hear you are safe from the flooding! It's so sad that many people there who had been dealing with a severe drought are now being flooded out!

Somehow I did not know you live in Colorado! So glad you are safe from the floods. Excessive rain is a nuisance, but at least you are not flooding.

Peach is my favorite fruit, but I can never find a perfect one. This looks delicious. Thanks for sharing!

Oh Stephanie, this looks so good. I think it is past our peach season but maybe we could use a good canned peach..what do you think? This would be so nice year around...I might even do it this weekend as it looks so easy and we have a full schedule...what a nice treat after a busy day.
Thanks my friend for passing this along.
Big hugs to you..xo

It is good to now that you and your family are safe. Here in the mountains, the river flooded about three years ago, and it was quite devastating. Not something I care to go through again :-#

Thank you for sharing your peach crisp recipe, it is actually on the menu today ;D. Peace to you today Stephanie... m.

Oh gosh I do not think I knew you live in Colorado. I am so glad to hear that you are safe. Maybe some of your rain will head our way? lol
Peach season is my absolute favorite. This year the hill country did not have a good crop so I did not even make any jam. Thank you so much for sharing your yummy recipe.

Stephanie,
I am so glad and grateful to hear that you and your family are alright and were not affected by the flooding! I haven't had a chance to watch the news about much to hear about it, but I know it has been on the minds of many. I'm so glad you're safe, and my heart goes out to those who have lost their homes and family.

And your crisp looks like true heaven!! The juiciness of the peaches looks so mouth-watering and sounds amazing combined with such wonderful ingredients... especially the cinnamon and brown-sugar. I would love to try this- I don't remember when the last time we had a peach crisp or made one. This definitely makes me wish we would have picked up peaches at the grocery store today!

I hope you are having a blessed week!!

Huge hugs to you,
Jazzmin :)

Dear Stepahanie,
Yes, I'm so happy to hear that you are safe. But as you've said. we'll pray for the affected families. I too didn't know much about the flooding, as I don't watch tv. May be, I should switch to some other mode to keep track of the daily happenings.
This peach crisp you've made is so yummy looking :) May The Lord bless you and keep you.
Hugs

Hi Stephanie,
I didn't realize you live in Colorado. The news has been devastating! I really hope it stops raining soon so families can get their lives back.

Your peach crisp looks divine! One of my favorite things about fall is the apple and peach crisps. So delicious.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh YUM! That looks delicious, especially with the cream.
We are down to two peaches left in the fruit basket. I plan to make one of my peach pies for dessert tonight that I made and put in the freezer.
